Cuckoo, Cuckoo, Say what do you do? (1 Viewer)

Resident cuckoo still in song, flew over me at close range. I wonder for how much longer.

Modern tracking devices have shown that the old nursery rhyme is not always accurate. Last year, one individual came to Beaulieu on cue, but began the journey south two months later, on 16 June crossed the channel, and spent the next three months migrating south.

Any cuckoos in August in GB are usually born this year making a slow start to migrate
